Today we start a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey and the lovely Annie is our host this month and she has chosen the theme:
A Vintage Christmas
Use your dies, stamps, rub ons - anything
you choose to create a Vintage Christmas
card, home decor piece or a gift for someone special.
Now that we are into December I don't mind starting to make Christmas decorations! I used a Spellbinders die to cut the base for my decoration. I cut one in Coasterboard and then covered both sides using Tim's Yuletide Paper Stash. The lovely little label comes from the sheet of tickets at the back of the paper stash.
I love making these snowy white crispy poinsettias using Tim's Tatterred Poinsettia Die. Click the link HERE if you want to see the tutorial on my blog from last Christmas. These poinsettias were made with white cardstock which I spritzed with Perfect Pearls before they dried. Instead of a brad in the centre I used these lovely white stamens for a real Christmas look.
The addition of a few more Christmassy embellishments were just enough to give it a vintage Christmas feel.
I do hope you will join us for our challenge and do hop on over to A Vintage Journey to see a fabulous array of projects from my fellow Creative Guides. You can't fail to be inspired!
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a lovely weekend - gales and rain are forecast here, so plenty of time to catch up with writing Christmas cards and wrapping presents.
